ChainCraft produces medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) from organic residues with an open culture fermentation, which can be used for a variety of applications like animal feed and lubricants. It’s a spin-off from the Wageningen University&Research and was founded in 2010, a Demonstration factory with a maximum capacity of 2 kton per year was commissioned in 2019. The next step for ChainCraft is the construction of a commercial scale plant with a capacity of >20 kton MCFAs per year, the current focus of ChainCraft’s research is therefore optimization and upscaling of the existing production process.
